We published a short YouTube video to explain our motivation for creating Dayflash. Check it out...https://youtu.be/aaklXEojlEg
Go to the Dayflash camera. Swipe left or tap the button located on the bottom left corner of the camera (the button that shows a number on it). Then tap the "Upload photo" button, which will be located at the bottom left corner on your screen.
Dayflash displays photos in an immersive, fullscreen style by default. If the size of the horizontal image being uploaded is fully horizontal (i.e., the aspect ratio is greater than 4:3), then the image shared will be rotated and displayed in fullscreen style. In any other case, the image will not rotate. Fullscreen display style is part of what makes Dayflash different and special. An update might be released in the future so you can control the auto-rotation behavior.
Photos that you share stay on the Dayflash part of your profile for 24 hours. After 24 hours, you can go to your pin page (by tapping on the small grey pin button that's on your profile) and there you can choose to pin select photos to your profile history so that other people can see your pinned photos when they visit your profile page.
This is related to the previous question. Please tap the small grey pin button on your profile. The pin button is located on the right side of where the "HISTORY" label is on your profile. Photos you share stay on the Dayflash part of your profile for 24 hours and after 24 hours they automatically move to your pin page that only you can see so you can choose which photos you want to keep displayed on your profile.
Hashtags are NOT supported on posts. Search and discovery on Dayflash is powered by the KEYWORDS you add to your account when you edit your profile. Be sure to add popular keywords as well as niche keywords that are relevant to your account, so that more people can discover your account via Explore, Suggested Users and Search.
To set keywords to your account, simply go to your profile, tap Edit Profile, and then add keywords.
You may encounter an alien 👽 on Dayflash at any time as you’re viewing photos and videos on your Home feed, Explore feed, or Trending Now feed. If you do encounter an alien on any of these three feeds, that alien will temporarily Karma Boost your Dayflash to the top of Explore so more users can see the photos/videos you shared today! You’ll encounter an alien whenever you’ve collected a lot of karma throughout the day by sharing, viewing and engaging with fresh photos/videos from lots of Dayflash users. You can encounter an alien every day. And you'll get notified each time you receive a Karma Boost from an alien. Posts with a Karma Boost are displayed on Explore with a shooting star. 💫
To qualify for an alien encounter on Dayflash, your account must be public, must have at least 50 followers, must follow the community guidelines, and must have a positive reputation within the community on Dayflash.

Tap "Message" on a user's profile to send them a direct message or a picture. Swipe left on your Home tab to access your Direct Messages Inbox.

You’ll receive a message request from a user that you’re not following or from a user that you’ve never messaged before. Message Requests can be accessed via the top right corner of your Direct Messages Inbox. A user won’t know that you’ve viewed their message request unless you decide to accept it.
Yes, to send a photo, tap on the upload photo button at the bottom left corner of a message, select your photo, and then tap on the arrow button to send it as a direct message.
When you block a direct message, it will automatically get deleted from your inbox, and you will no longer receive any direct messages from that user.
No, blocking a user’s direct messages just blocks their direct messages from being received in your inbox. To block a user, go to that user’s profile, tap on the options button (top right), and then tap Block User. You can unblock a user by going to their profile, tapping on the options button (top right), and then tapping Unblock User.
If you previously blocked a user’s direct message, the only way to remove the block is to go to that user’s profile, and tap message to send them a direct message.
To unsend a direct message, hold down on the message you want to unsend, and then tap unsend.
To copy a direct message to your phone’s clipboard, hold down on the message you want to copy, and then tap copy.
To report a direct message, hold down on the message you want to report, and then tap report.
Not yet, but Dayflash is planning to release a group chat feature in the near future so that users can chat privately with a group of two or more users.
If you have ideas or suggestions on how we can improve the app, please do share them with us by sending us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Even though we can't reply to every suggestion we receive, someone will certainly read your message and it'd be great to hear your suggestions, things you don't like, things you love or ideas you might have for the app.
In a nutshell...
We want Dayflash to continue to be an authentic and safe social community for inspiration and expression. Help us create this community. Share only your own photos and videos and always follow the law. Respect everyone on Dayflash, don’t post nudity and don't spam people.
